    Justin Lin Could Make "True Detective" Season 2 Awfully Fast and/or Furious

    Whle True Detective Season 2 has been swirling in the rumor mill since the first season basically ended, with every able-bodied man and woman "potentially" eyed for a role, Deadline reports that Fast and Furious 6 director Justin Lin is set to direct the first two episodes of HBO's hit series' sophomore season.
     

    I have learned that The Fast And The Furious‘ Justin Lin is in talks to direct at least the first two episodes of the upcoming season. He would succeed Cary Fukunaga, who helmed and executive produced all eight episodes from Season 1 and just won the best director for a drama series Emmy for his work. 

    Deadline sticks to rumors that the True Detective Season 2 cast will include Colin Farrell (In Bruges, Fright Night ), Vince Vaughn (The Cell, PSYCHO ), and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, SAVAGES ) with a female lead still being eyed. 

    According to circulated breakdowns, the second cycle of True Detective will be set in California and focus on the investigation of a corrupt city manager who gets murdered amidst a potential groundbreaking transportation deal.

    Marilyn Manson is Coming to Charming in SONS OF ANARCHY's Final Season 

     

    The testosterone-filled biker drama Sons of Anarchy is gearing up to enter it's final season this fall, and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has reportedly been cast as a shot-caller whom Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam, Pacific Rim) uses to expand his influence while in jail.

    Deadline reports:

    Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” said Manson, who had a bit role on HBO’s Eastbound & Down last year. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So now all I need is a motorcycle.” 

    Sons of Anarchy follows the titular SAMCRO Gang located out of Charming, California and has been a huge hit for FX in the past 6 years it has been on, pushing the boundaries of even it's TV-MA rating.

    The show ended it's bloody and controversial 6th season with a huge death, and the 7th season is expected to begin "just before" the big kill.

    First Trailer for Fox's 'Gotham'

    Fox has released its first trailer for their Batman prequel series, Gotham, starring Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon.

    The trailer - which had a condensed version running during tonight's premiere of 24: Live Another Day - certainly sets the tone and mood for something comic book fans will enjoy but also the 'average joe' might like too.

    Earlier today, it was announced the series had been picked up for 'at least' 13 episodes, with a potential 9 more on the backend if the series scores high ratings.

    I'd rather them focus more on giving a good, quality drama over 13 straight-forward episodes than a potential 22 that try to stretch the storyline to make it from September to May.

    We'll find out this fall.
